HTTPS for WordPress With a Click

UPDATE: If you're using CloudFlare with your website, make sure you set the SSL Option in our CloudFlare tool in cPanel to Flexible,  then configure WordPress to work through HTTPS and finally, switch the option in CloudFlare to Full Strict. This way, you will not have any downtime during the reconfiguration process. Check out our CloudFlare tutorial for additional information on that matter.

A month ago we made the first step to increase the adoption rate of SSL certificates amongst our customers by starting to issue automatically Let's Encrypt certificates for all domains hosted on our servers. However, there still remained a manual step to configure all applications to use the certificates we've made available. We knew that if we really wanted to see a rise in the HTTPS usage we not only needed to provide the SSLs, but also make it easy for our clients to implement them. Today we are happy to announce that we have achieved this second goal for a large group of our customers -- the WordPress users.

Happy HTTPS 2017 to you!

Last year we made a big step towards making the SSL certificates more widely used. We backed financially the super cool open SSL project Let’s Encrypt and we provided an easy cPanel interface, from where all our users can issue free Let’s Encrypt certificates with a single click. This has resulted in more than 40 thousand new SSL installations on our servers. However, there is still a long way to go before we see HTTPS protocol completely replace the insecure HTTP.  Now, in the very beginning of 2017 we are happy to announce that we have taken the next big step in this direction -- we have started to automatically issue Let's Encrypt certificates for every domain that is hosted on our shared servers.

PHP 7.0 is Now Default on SiteGround Servers

Last December we were among the first hosting companies to make PHP 7.0 available on our entire infrastructure. Thanks to our system which allows multiple PHPs to be used on one server, anyone could have switched to PHP 7.0 since its zero-day release, while we still kept an older and well-tested PHP version as the global default setting. Now, an year later we believe it's time for the next step - setting PHP 7.0 as default for all new accounts.
